Milliken & Company, headquartered in Spartanburg, South Carolina, has been named to the 2023 America’s Most Innovative Companies list presented by Fortune and Statista Inc.

The list honors “300 companies transforming industries from the inside out,” and Milliken is one of 11 featured manufacturers. Statista surveys employees and experts to assess product and process innovations, and collaborates with LexisNexis to analyze the quantity and value of a company’s patents. These three components come together for a final score, and the top 300 U.S. companies are listed as America’s Most Innovative Companies.

“At Milliken, we draw on our materials science expertise to maintain a portfolio of more than 11,000 products used in the textile, specialty chemical, floor covering and healthcare industries,” shares Milliken president and CEO Halsey Cook. “Innovation is a core value and it is firmly embedded in our culture.”
